This arrangement produces two further obstacles to cooperation, as follows. Usually the city has a stronger need to cooperate than the surrounding communities because it lacks suitable sites for land use (which are plentiful in the surrounding region) or because its public services and amenities are used by neighbouring local authorities who do not contribute adequately to them. However, the core city is rarely willing to give up part of its autonomy in favour of a joint approach.
